Cha Bei launches new healthy menu
While not new on the scene, Cha Bei in The Galaxy Macau has revamped its menu and added even more healthy food options, catering to the growing wellness crowd. With the goal of challenging the misconception that healthy foods are bland and tasteless, their fantastic new offerings include a carrot smoothie bowl, avo bun burger and the super green buckwheat crepes, which are a must-try on your next visit to Macau. It even has avocado Vegemite toast, which to an Aussie, is a huge deal and draws me in every time.

Goa Nights cocktail bar opens in Taipa
With very few options for great cocktails in Macau, Goa Nights is a refreshing addition to the scene. Not just a bar, this contemporary Indian tapas-style restaurant combines classic and modern Indian flavors in a swish three-story location. It’s a very intimate space, making it perfect for a date or an evening with friends. The menu is varied with a ton of vegetarian options for those who like their food spicy and full of flavor. Not an Indian food lover? Then stop by and enjoy their great list of cocktails created by bar manager and head mixologist Chetan Gangan.
